A Child is Missing (ACIM)
If your child goes missing, CALL 9-1-1 FIRST!
A Child is Missing (ACIM) is a Fort Lauderdale-based non-profit organization founded in 1997, it was created because no community based program existed for locating missing children, the disabled and elderly often (with Alzheimer’s) during the crucial first hours of disappearance. Unlike the Amber Alert, which is only used in a case of an abduction, police are free to use this system as they feel fit.
ACIM alert program is a rapid response telephone system that alerts residents and businesses in a target area about a missing person. ACIM can place 1,000 calls in sixty seconds, can process multiple cases simultaneously, and can work without jurisdictional boundaries. There are ACIM success stories abound.
ACIM is devoted to assisting law enforcement in the search and early safe recovery efforts of children / the elderly (often with Alzheimer's) / disabled persons and college students via a rapid-response neighborhood alert program utilizing high-tech telephony systems.
